Strelitzia Nicolai is a tropical, upright, palm-like plant that is an icon of the indoor plant collection. The plant is fast growing and will quickly become a feature plant within any household due to its size, leaf shape and flowers which resemble a bird of paradise.

Strelitzia Nicolai is an easy care plant that is well suited to a very bright space with some direct sunlight in the morning. Strelitzia requires less watering through winter and increased watering during the growing months. It should be kept semi-compact in a well draining mix and re-potted each year.

Strelitzia Nicolai has beautiful, large leaves which should be handled with care and kept in a humid environment. Without this care the leaves can rip and fray, which is not damaging to the health of the plant, only to the aesthetic.

This plant can cause slight irritations to animals and humans if ingested.

The plant is approximately 30cm long and it comes in a plastic nursery pot 12cm.

Care Tips:

Water: Sparingly, approximately every 3 weeks in winter, every 1.5 weeks in summer

Light: Very bright, with some direct morning sun.

Humidity: High
